I meet up with Gran Canaria-born photographer and all-round Canary Island expert, Alex Bramwell to explore what Gran Canaria and the other Canary Islands have to offer.



Alex tells me about the Islands´history, the best beaches to visit, the most dramatic hiking routes to take, and what food to try. We also touch on Gran Canaria´s economy and of course one of the world´s biggest carnivals which takes place every February on the island.
